We got a tip from a local to visit this one. We had been to the one on the harbor before but decided to check this out and it was worth it. They only sell fresh seafood that has been caught in the area. They list the fresh catches on a chalkboard menu. You stand in line to order and... More

I would recommend this to anyone visiting Destin. Try the catch of the day and the pirates punch. We sat on the patio over looking the harbor. Greta food and great view.

Eat early tonight (4 pm) and we were able to finally eat at Dewey Destins Seafood. Shrimp was great as was crab finger appetizers. Homemade key lime pie is a must dessert. Eat here and you'll be happy that you did so. Our waitress Danielle was fantastic too !

We had the fried shrimp basket and the grilled shrimp basket, both were very good. The grilled shrimp didnt event need the butter it was served with, it was deliciously seasoned. However, the sides were lacking. The "crinkle fries, new potatoes and corn" were flavorless and boring. The hush puppies were excellent and the cole slaw was good. They should... More

Dewey Destin Seafood overlooking Crab Island is a must stop for lunch. You order and then seat yourself at any of the tables that extend out over the water. The view can not be beat! I can not recommend the "stuffed fried shrimp" any more. It is absolutely one of the best things I have ever eaten. It is bacon-wrapped,... More

My interest was peaked in Dewey Destin after I learned about the rich history of this place. You have to go to the ORIGINAL shack to get the full effect. FIRST, turn down this old dirt road that leads past incredibly junky yards, houses and random cats. SECOND, walk to the left of the wooden shack and wait in line... More

We learned about this fun, laid back, good seafood restaurant from locals. It is a "must try," when in Destin, and becomes a family tradition. Completely built out over the water on the beautiful East Pass, near the Destin Bridge, it is basically a seafood shack offering a fun dining experience with a magnificent view. It is family owned and... More

if you want some great fried shrimp and want to eat as close to the water as possible you must try dewey's across from crab island, the "fish market" feel offers a great casual dining experience complete with bay views.
